    Probably the manufacturer at first then the figure gets delayed and they don't bother changing the release date. Only guessing though

    Probably just placeholders until a proper date gets announced

    Yeah this was originally supposed to come out last December or the one before that. As with all things third party, all dates are subject to change.

    Maybe it would be better for them to tease pics with an approximate release date later to when they think they can release it. This way, if we get it earlier, then we get a nice surprise. Otherwise, then, it's what they advertised!

    My formula.

    Color prototype+six months=3rd party release date.

    Generally speaking, any time there's news on any project, people tend to rush here to share it right away. Asking for updates after long periods of no updates is most likely to get you responses telling you the project is cancelled, often to discourage people from bumping an otherwise quiet thread and creating false hope for actual updates.

    It's better to set him up for an pre-emptive disappointment than to keep him waiting forever.

    Like NeoArt toy's HyperNovae Nova Prime. Or Mech Ideas Pestilence...:cry

    Has there ever been a time...in the history of the known universe...when someone has bumped a thread to ask for news and actually received news that hadn't already been posted?

    (Obviously that's a rhetorical question because obviously the topic would have been flooded with new posts as soon as any scrap of new information became available thus rendering the above scenario impossible)

    Who WANTS a thread to be uselessly bumped? Who sees alerts for watched threads and goes "OH BOY! I hope that's just someone pointlessly asking if there has been an update and not an actual update!"

    I didn’t say I liked threads being bumped, but I just leave like a normal person I don’t decide to comment something dumb

    At least we can speculate further since everyone's attention is back on this. Do we think they'll try to go for any combinations or stick to just Prime himself?

    Probably depends on how well Prime himself sells and is received. If he sells absolute gangbusters then I can see them doing the combination partners and Megatron and all the repaints those entail, if not just the entire Cybertron cast eventually.

    Was that a joke?

    If not, it's simply untrue.

    I've posted pics to threads weeks after they've come up on retailers sites. I also semi-regularly find pics in FB groups that aren't on TFW. It's easy to pretend that TFW is the only discussion going on, but it's not.

    I honestly can't tell if you're joking though, since I've had people SERIOUSLY claim that all new info is already on TFW.

    I mean maybe if you're talking about some random obscure figure that barely anyone is paying attention to, but I seriously doubt something like this would go over a month without anyone posting any new info that came up.
